Winifred Tumim Memorial Prize
The Winifred Tumim Memorial Prize for best practice in charity governance has been established by NCVO in honour of the work done by Lady Winifred Tumim, chair of NCVO from 1996-2001, to improve the quality of charity governance.
By using the Good Governance code as a tool to self-evaluate performance, the charity has affirmed a clearer and more inspiring future for itself.
